The story is about a charming story about a small pig who wants to be a sheepdog. This was my childhood movie and after a few year have gone by I don't think the film is ground breaking or spectacular in many ways, I still see it has as a family friendly movie.

A great, charming family film. Talking animals don't usually impress me too much, but this manages to be sweet without being cloying. All in all, perfect for families and young children, but not so bad that adults can't enjoy it too.

I don't like 'talking animal' films, but this one had a good story. It was easier to watch, because they didn't try to make the animal's mouths match the voiceover.

Babe review

Arthur Hoggett (James Cromwell) wins Babe, an affable innocent pig named Babe by his mother. Babe stays with Fly, a sheepdog, and her pups. He encounters Ferdinand, a duck who wants to be a rooster, a mean cat named Duchess and the mate of Fly, Rex. Rex gets jealous of the attention given to Babe. Arthur names Babe "Pig" to enter a sheepdog contest. Surprisingly funny and full of life lessons based on the intellectual screenplay. Lines such as: "The only way to find happiness is to accept..that the way things are is the way things are." "Being young, it's hard to discriminate." and "When childhood ends...and the doorway opens to a life as an adult." This reviewer was astounded to discover it was nominated for Best Picture (rivaling Braveheart). It won special effects and has become...

Real cute

"Babe" (voiced by Christine Cavanaugh) is a runt piglet with a kind heart who, by fate, comes into the life of a gentle farmer (James Cromwell, who was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for the role). The farmer realizes almost immediately that the pig is something special, and his suspecions are realized when it becomes clear that "Babe," which he calls "Pig" has a way with sheep and the other animals on his farm.

This is a very cute movie, but has its problems. The biggest problem is the performances of the majority of the human cast. I really could not find these characters believable for the most part. Cromwell was probably the best of the human cast.

Something that this movie does very nicely is the special effects. If you ask me, it was difficult to tell the diff...

"For in them lie the seeds of destiny."

Most family films fall into one (or more) of several traps: they condescend to their audiences, confusing the word "child" with such words as "idiot," "simpleton," and "ignoramus"; they try to affect whimsy by throwing together as many bright colors and shiny, over-caffeinated objects as possible; they cleanse their films of all darkness or menace, mistakenly believing that children are incapable of comprehending the fact that life is not all ice cream and furry puppy dogs; and--worst of all--they treat their material with a winking contempt rather than as serious subject matter. The secret to Babe's success is that is avoids all of these temptations. It is charming, it is whimsical, it is cute. Children will undoubtedly enjoy it. But it is more than a sugary diversion. It teaches re...
